Welcome to 

The Caterpillar Class

Our youngest children have a small but safe space to explore and gain confidence whilst experiencing, for some of them, their first time being seperated from their parents. However, the warm, experienced and friendly staff make this experience fun and exciting for the children. They learn how to become independent and make great new friendships on the way. Once the children are confident and happy in their new environment they can begin to explre the  bigger Nursery. The Caterpillar Class is a great introduction to the Nursery and the children are so confident when they move into the Nursery once they are 3.  

Open door policy - staff are approachable, helpful and friendly
